We rented the two bedroom cottage it was mostly clean , it smelled clean and it did seem like the sink and the shower and kitchen area were clean but doors were dirty light fixtures had cobwebs ,a small mole crab came out from under our bed weird. In front bedroom the curtains were not blackout curtains so even at two in the morning it was bright in the room . Usually around 6 30 or so in the morning some guy would come around sweeping outside our bedroom so loud kept waking us up. We got the cottage just so we wouldn't be right on the boardwalk and be woke up in the mornings. Front bedroom seemed a little outdated back bedroom seemed like it was more updated .With that being said, I had to ask for extra shampoo and conditioner. I had to ask for towels to go to the beach with which they asked me if I even stayed there 🤦 It was very close to the boardwalk and beach which was very nice. The vibe around Venice Beach is pretty cool. Lots of local street artists. Music playing. There is a restaurant there right around the corner from our cottage. Did not eat there but seemed like a popular spot. It was a very cute cottage. Had a nice patio outside. On our last day when we tried to leave, one of the workers pulled so far up to our cottage gate we couldn't get out. When we asked them to move because our Uber driver was there he couldn't speak English. Finally, after several minutes another guy came up and said what's your problem so we tried to tell him and he didn't act like he was in that big of a hurry to move so that was disappointing. But if you don't mind, no blackout curtains and noise It is a cute and fun place to stay. And you are literally just a couple minutes from the beach ❤️. It really isn't a bad place to stay. I just have high expectations of super cleanliness and at least blackout curtains in places like that.
